How can I learn to read the hitters when I´m in the back row?

Reading Hitters, Part 7

Once you've made all your mental calculations about the flight of the ball, you'll need to shift your attention to the hitter. Watch the hitter's approach, where they begin, and the way they move toward the ball.

If a set is high outside, and the hitter must come at the ball from outside the sideline, the ball MUST be hit angle, since that's the only way the ball can legally cross the net between the antennas. The farther out the hitter must go, the sharper the angle of the hit must be.
